Report: Beats by Dre ends relationship with Deshaun Watson amid sexual assault allegations

Nike announced Wednesday morning that it has suspended its sponsorship of Deshaun Watson amid numerous sexual assault allegations against the Houston Texans quarterback. Later in the day, another company reportedly ended its relationship with the 25-year-old. 

According to ESPN's Sarah Barshop, Beats by Dre has ended its relationship with Watson. He has had a relationship with the company since entering the NFL in 2017. 

Twenty-two women have filed lawsuits against the three-time Pro Bowler, alleging he inappropriately touched them, exposed himself or forcibly kissed them during massage appointments. 

At the time of this writing, Watson's sponsorships with Rolex, H-E-B, Reliant Energy and Lefty's Famous Cheesesteaks were still intact. 

The NFL and the Houston Police Department have launched separate investigations into Watson. League spokesman Brian McCarthy called the allegations against the QB "deeply disturbing."
